Why Small Groups?

As much as we love to gather with the whole church for worship and events, there is something powerful and transformative about gathering in a living room, around the dinner table or hanging out in the kitchen that forces us to think differently than when we are in a crowd.  We believe everyone should be part of this experience.

For us it's personal:

We believe faith is personal when it's practiced.

We believe we can be the answers to someone's prayer.

We believe that everybody needs somebody that knows them personally.

We believe everybody needs somebody to see them like Jesus sees them.

We believe everybody needs somebody to believe they can change.

What Happens In Small Groups


We are designed for personal connection.  God has hard-wired us to be in relationships with others that digital connection just cannot provide.  We can all benefit from a life-giving group of people that journey with us as we live out our faith.


Each person and church is different, but the truth is that we all want to feel cared for.  We can't be all things to all people, but we find value in caring for the people placed around us - not just at church, but in every area of life.  We want to care for and be cared for.


Without being connected and cared for it is difficult to commit to anything.  We strive to find relevant ways to connect with those around us, at church and in our community.  Jesus set a high standard for us to love others and this requires commitment in a world where many are feeling uncommitted and disconnected.


We use a life application style of curriculum to help us grow, mature and ask the questions that need to be answered.  Curriculum doesn't drive our groups, but it is a valuable tool to help us develop deeper faith and move us past shallow relationship.
